Finding my way towards the end of the week

With my performance portfolio completed and the Spring Journal sent on to its new owner, I feel lighter and my mind is better able to cope with the endless To Do list that seems to take on a life of its own when spring arrives and the neglected yard is screaming for attention.

I love the changes in light now that spring is here, especially in the morning.  On my drive to work I look forward to seeing the sun rise over the fields.  On this particular morning the sun was trying to break through the fog creating a fabulous photo op.

On my way home I noticed the sun’s ray shooting out between the clouds.

Allistair has some very quirky habits that always make me laugh.  He loves to “sneak” dog food.  He puts his paw in the bowl, cups it, then draws a single kibble out to eat.

He did not get the memo that reads cats don’t like water.  He loves to play with the water in the kitchen sink.  Instead of simply sipping the running water out of the faucet, he uses his paw to get a drink, 

The lilacs are out.  Nothing makes me happier than their intoxicating scent.

I planted these tulips the fall my son Zachary was sent to Afghanistan.  When they make their annual appearance I am reminded how much I needed to see them that first spring; they eased my worries just enough to help me get through.  I still find myself looking forward to their yellow blooms signaling that spring has finally arrived.
